4-H supports Census Awareness


Civic Engagement is a foundational part of the University of California 4-H Youth Development Program. Youth learn how they can make a positive difference in their communities through service learning projects, volunteer service projects, and more.

This campaign is about educating our youth and the community about the Census and how it impacts every community in California. We are encouraging all Californians to fill out the Census from home - online, by phone, or by mailing in the form.

Please see our Toolkit for materials you can download to help promote the importance of completing the Census!
